Atvero, a trademark of IT and consultancy services provider Nittygritty.net, has launched a project information management (PIM) solution on the Office365 SharePoint platform that offers a powerful on-cloud project delivery capability for design and construction professionals.
Atvero sales and marketing director, Paul Daynes, said: “Design and construction companies that have or are looking to migrate to cloud strategies, will benefit hugely from this smarter way to manage project deliverables and communication, when compared with on-premise PIM solutions.”
The launch comes as the architect and masterplanner Chapman Taylor announced it has chosen Atvero to support its global operations.
Chapman Taylor director Andy Hudson explained: “Atvero PIM provides us with a modern and scalable project information management solution that meets our business needs for the next decade and beyond. To be competitive, win and deliver more successful projects, we need a platform that gives us flexibility, but also rigour in our project delivery processes. Atvero PIM offers us this capability.”
Chapman Taylor’s incumbent PIM capability did not provide a scaleable platform for its business strategies as Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint lacked the workflows necessary to support industry and BIM standards within a highly dynamic and integrated project delivery environment.
Atvero PIM seamlessly integrates with existing Office365 subscriptions and delivers a cloud-based solution to enable users to organise and centralise the creation and management of project emails, documents and drawings that comply with both company and industry standards.
Highlights of the new package include: project files access and project-wide search; project email management, with Outlook365; configurable project summary pages; global and project contact library with roles and competencies; file naming compliance to BS 1192/ISO 19650-2 or to company standards; file versioning, revisioning, suitability codes and co-authoring; document management; document QA, status and issue control; and information access via desktop, web and mobile.
